Great experience
wrz 2020 • Dla rodziny
The staff is very friendly and polite. The guide for our trail was very interactive and just fun to talk to. With her sharing her stories made the trip even more entertaining. I had the pleasure of visiting this place 2x in different vacations. I would not choose another place to take the family to.

Amazing experience
sie 2020 • Dla rodziny
My entire family had a great time at Saddle Up Stables (kids are 8, 11 & 14). We were all first time riders and the staff was very helpful and encouraging, especially with the nervous adults. Horses were well trained. The ride was smooth with great views of Lake George. In particular, our guide Dustin was amazing. Would highly recommend.

Great family ride!
wrz 2020
We had a terrific time with Saddle Up Stables! Two of our party of four were pretty nervous and it was very reassuring that the guide (and horses!) completely knew what they were doing. The team was very friendly and Susie, the owner, knows all of the horses personalities and really pairs riders with the horses well. The trail was long enough with a few spots offering beautiful views of the lake. Our daughter left wanting to go back the next day!

Relaxing ride with great views.
sie 2020 • Dla rodziny
Relaxing ride with beautiful views! The horses look taken care of and they did a great job matching horses with riders! I went with some family and we are a mixed group of riders. We had from only ridden twice to very experienced and everyone had fun. It is walk only with a guide. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and was great at making sure that even the beginners were comfortable.

Wait time to get on a horse is infuriating
sie 2020
The horses seem to be well cared for. They are given long breaks in between rides and have a shady area with fans blowing on them while they are relaxing. They are led to water after a walk and before the next walk. I even saw one of the handlers picking what I call "eye boogers" out of a horse's eyes. So they seem to be loved. With that said, my biggest beef with Saddle Up Stables is this: the wait time to actually get ON a horse was infuriating. When you have a reservation, whether it be for a horseback ride or dinner or a boat ride, and your reservation is at 11am, and you show up at 10:45 am, you shouldn't have to wait until noon to get on a horse!! If this were a restaurant, I would have walked out. We were getting angry about the wait by 11:30 and then really angry at 11:45 and then about to ask for a refund when they finally called us to ride at 12:00. The anger of the wait overshadowed the joy we should have felt from the ride. There must be a better way this stable can use to handle the flow. My second complaint was that the staff was patronizing and our guide had, quite literally, nothing to say to us about the area, the history, fun facts, nothing. We are a lively group and tried to engage her in some kind of interaction and she just didn't have the personality for it.... at ALL. We asked her questions and she didn't know anything. We even asked her if she would recommend us to do something in particular in the area since we are from a different state and she said (after contemplation).... I don't know! The only thing she actually said to us was, "we're going down a hill, heels down, toes up and lean back." For the price paid, $70 per person for an hour, I really expected more from Saddle Up. The trail is completely shaded. Soft, loose dirt and rocks. The 'view of the lake' is twice for about 45 seconds each.

We apologize for your long wait last week. This is the first year we are doing reservations due to Covid and limited staff. We understand, no one likes to wait and to keep everyone "happy", we have since limited our availability even more to reduce the wait time. We are doing the best we can without pushing our horses faster and our staff. We want to make sure each rider is fitted to their horse properly and it takes time to load each rider and choose the appropriate horse to match. I'm really sorry the guide you had was not an "outgoing type of person". It is top priority to hire competent horse people as guides and it is always a plus that they are outgoing and talkative.

Nice beginner ride by the lake
sie 2020 • Pary
Nice and slow trail with beautiful views of Lake George. All participants were beginners, I included. Trail leader was always looking back to see how we all are managing our beautiful horses. They practiced safe precautions against covid with hand sanitizers before and after riding and all wearing masks while we wait.

so much fun!

The ride was great! My friend had never been on a horse before and was frankly terrified but the staff made sure she got a very gentle horse and kept her close to the trail guide. The trail was gorgeous. beautiful views of the Adirondacks and the Lake in the distance. The day was perfect, not too hot or cool with a stunning blue sky.
